OpenMarkets is a digital trading platform and provider of execution-only brokerage services for trading on the Australian securities markets. Our clients are self-directed investors, active traders, financial advisers, robo-advisers, fintechs and financial intermediaries.
We are an Australian Financial Services licensee (246705) and full market participant of ASX, Chi-X and NSX with trading, clearing and settlement memberships.
We set ourselves apart from other brokers with our range of trading platforms, simple low fees, real-time trading and data APIs and our ‘open’ philosophy towards third party integration. Our partners include robo-advisers, online brokers, banks, wealth management platforms and administration providers, who share the same vision for open connectivity to create a new world of possibilities for investors.
Since opening the doors in 2013, our open philosophy has helped us rapidly grow, consistently ranking OpenMarkets in the top 15 brokers in Australia by trading volume.
In 2016, OpenMarkets received a 5-star CANSTAR rating for outstanding value in share trading and ranked #3 in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. In 2017, we ranked #34 in the AFR Fast Starters List and were finalists in the Platform Innovator of the Year category at the 2017 and 2018 Fintech Business Awards.
It is our collaborative approach, open technology and pioneering attitude that allows us to look beyond tradition and think about what’s next, making OpenMarkets the trading platform of the future and ideal partner for the financial services industry.
What makes us different?
With Open APIs, our technology is open to connect with leading financial services and software for seamless integration that makes doing business a breeze.
Our enhanced efficiencies and economies of scale mean we can charge less per trade. It’s about being smarter not cheaper, and we’re always on hunt to deliver more.
With the broadest choice of trading platforms, cash accounts, data feeds, APIs and more, we offer a range of integrated products so you can trade your way.
Unlike other brokers, we don’t pool your assets. Securities, cash – keep it all in your own name and take control of your trade like never before.
Our infrastructure is hosted by Amazon Cloud with Tier 1 hosting in the ASX liquidity Centre, so you can execute a split-second trade even on our busiest days.
Forget automated voice recordings. Our experienced local team is onshore and on call to provide a friendly, personalised service.
